I don't really think about it in sides taken.  

Unfortunately, it is ultimately about sides taken.  

It's about attempting  to return to something approaching normalcy in our Federal government or 4 more years of idiocy.  

You either choose to re-elect Trump, or you choose "NOT TRUMP," and then try to patch it up from there.  I disagree very strongly with Sanders and Warren, and don't see a "can't lose" pairing for a Potus/Veep from the weak Democratic field either.

That said, whoever the Dem nominee is, I will vote for him or her. Or her or him.    I will do actual work to help them get elected.  I will give whatever funds I can afford to assist the Democratic nominee in what is the most important election in any of our lifetimes.

Oh... What am I drinking?  A randomly found 2001 Neal Cabernet.  Quite good.  Glad I found two.  



Discovered Neal years ago thanks to pyang when he worked for them. But we don't get it here. 

I used to enjoy Neal wines very much...especailly the 02 Second Chance Vineyard and the One Lane Bridge.  The last few I tried (more current vintages (Wykoff and Howell Mountain), I noticed a very medicinal / Band Aid like nose coming through.  I wonder if they have a bit of Brett in their cellar. 

This has certainly turned me off to the winery and have not bought in a while.  Anyone else notice this?
